just a dumb question: why everyone is talking abt Vidal as some sort of an AM in 3-4-1-2. Anychance for something like:

Eriksen/Sensi
Barella/N9-Vidal/Brozo

Closed, not yet any reliable source. Discuss in the midfielders rumours thread.

*i quoted from the 1st page on this thread haha. The date didn’t show up

Jesus!!!! 2011 fking 2011!!

Took 9 years.... hope it’s not too late

6 million a season is insane wages for someone his age and more than a 1 year contract

What were his other options? MLS, China or Arabia? 1st doesn’t pay that high

I don’t think he’s got the legs to play in a 2 . For Barca he played a lot of games as an AM and when he played as a CM it was in a 3. Pretty sure Conte thinks the same but we’ll see

I think Vidal will play as the 1 in 3-4-1-2 or as a B2B in a 3-5-2. I don't think Conte plans to use him as a deep midfielder or DM. We still need Kante or someone like him to make sure Gagliardini doesn't start when Conte needs a DM. That will give us a lot of tactical flexibility in our midfield.

Greetings my dear inter friends! My name is Aldo and I'm from Chile. I'm following this website since a lot of years. Became an inter fan since Zamorano :)

Just want to wish you good luck. You are signing a pretty solid player, not in his prime, but with enough futbol and passion for you to enjoy.

All the best.

Aldo

It's crazy how he keep on waiting like he did last time for us before going to Barcelona. He should fucking leave us alone.

U trollin`, right? :unsure: I mean it`s obvious that OUR CLUB is holding this up now.

GdS: Vidal feels great and is driven by burning motivations: for the first time in eight years, he finished without the league title and he wants to immediately resume his old habits.

Conte has asked for Vidal since he joined Inter last summer and the player considers the Inter coach as a mentor. He shares the same interesting fate as the coach and also that of Inter CEO Marotta: together they started this ferocious winning cycle at Juve and together they intend to throw this tyrant off its throne.

Your name’s Marotta? You call yourself a CEO, you son of a bitch? Put that coffee down. Coffee’s for closers.

‘The players are weak.’ Fucking players are weak? You’re weak. Fuck you, go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here? Sell. You think this is abuse? You think this is abuse, you cocksucker?

You see this watch? You see this watch?
You want to know what it takes to sell players? It takes BRASS BALLS to sell football players. Go and do likewise, gents. Money's out there. You pick it up, it's yours. You don't, I got no sympathy for you. You wanna go out on those sits tonight and close, CLOSE. It's yours. If not, you're gonna be shining my shoes. And you know what you'll be saying - a bunch of losers sittin' around in a bar. 'Oh yeah. I used to be a salesman. It's a tough racket.' These are the new leads. And to you they're gold, and you don't get them. Why? Because to give them to you is just throwing them away. They're for closers. I'd wish you good luck but you wouldn't know what to do with it if you got it. And to answer your question, pal, why am I here? I came here because Steven and Zhang asked me to. They asked me for a favor. I said the real favor, follow my advice and fire your fucking ass, because a loser is a loser.

Pedulla insists (mentions it 3 times) Vidal is joining Inter on a free. 5m plus bonuses for first season, 6.5m for the second.

I read that the initial signing fee will be 0, but we`ll pay performance-based bonuses, which seems to be the new fashion this year.

Because our transition to 3412 in the pre season was not done to help Eriksen but Vidal :) .
Having an AM which presses their defense has good off ball movement is all what Conte wants and Vidal can actually do that quite well.
Its the same as Spalleti with N9.

Not sure how Sensi will fit in this formation though.

That's exactly why I don't see it that way. If Vidal plays there in the hole, then Sensi will not be enough (as defensive cover) and especially Eriksen to play in this 2 player midfield. That means it would be Vidal/Sensi/Eriksen for 1 spot. I don't see it. Plus, did Vidal ever play for Conte in that position? From what I remember, he was that side midfielder, and always. With Spal, he played N9 often in the hole so it made sense Spalletti wanted him there. With Conte, it's different.

I believe Eriksen/Sensi played a lot in the hole in those friendlies because in fact Conte wants to play that way. I think he is shifting from relaying on Brozo as that pushed back midfielder, and wants to try Eriksen/Sensi with a lot of freedom in the front, backed by 2 hard working midfielders. That means we need Vidal, we need Barella, we need Gags and it's very likely we need N9 as well there.

If we play 3-4-1-2 yeah these older guys cannot play in the hole. One playing there needs to be a faster player. Mids playing lower needs to be warriors, so fits to Vidal perfectly. Nainggolan too if he's fit enough (if he's not fit enough, there's no place for him in the squad). Not saying that AM shouldn't play tough also but the main assets needs to be dribbling, passing and transition play.

If we don't let Godin go, will Vidal end up at Cagliari as Nainggolan's replacement? Would be poetic.

He's gonna be 34 by the end of next season. But best of luck, hopefully something good will come out of this.
A midfield of Brozo, Barella, Eriksen and Vidal doesn't look bad at all on paper.

Am I the only one not impressed by our midfield including Vidal a d Nainngolan?

I was hoping for more muscle in our midfield. My dream would have been SMS.

We’re giving Cagliari a team to challenge for top 4 at this rate.
